Rangers take a video of rare Caucasian Leopard in Armenia

Rangers from Arpa Protected Landscape of Armenia’s Vayots Dzor Province spotted the rare Caucasian Leopard during their regular observation and recorded a video of him, the World Wildlife Fund Armenia said on Facebook.

“This is very exciting as it's the first time in Armenia when a human could take a video of leopard. Until this we were able to see this extremely cautious animal only with camera traps. Let's protect our nature. It gives us so many opportunities to admire it,” the fund said.

The Caucasian Leopard (also known as the Persian Leopard) is the only subspecies of leopard to be classified as Endangered by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, which estimates that less than 1,300 mature individuals still exist in the wild.
